You’re eating well and you’re exercising regularly but you just CAN’T seem to lose weight. 

Sound familiar?  

Well, I’m here to tell you it’s not all in your head. 

And more importantly – it’s NOT your fault. 

Because the truth is, over 88% of overweight individuals and more surprisingly, 50% of thin people in the U.S. are what we call “metabolically INflexible”. 

Which means there IS actually something stopping the body from burning fat – and even worse, it could be contributing to serious illness. 

But it doesn’t have to be this way – and in this episode I explain why. 

With the information in this episode, you’ll have the know-how when it comes to optimizing your metabolism, burning stubborn fat, and dramatically improving your health. 

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • How mitochondria works in the body – and what it has to do with your health and weight (2:00)
  • Why we SHOULD all function as “hybrid cars” (but why so many of us don’t) (8:30)
  • What a fasting insulin levels really means – and the score YOU should be aiming for (15:00)
  • Why some people actually gain weight on a ketogenic diet (even if they’re doing everything right) (18:00)
  • The BEST blood test for understanding your health (anyone can get it for around $8) (21:00)
  • Why two twins can eat the EXACT same diet, yet have very different outcomes on their weight (and what it could mean for you) (25:00)
  • The first step to correcting metabolic inflexibility and transforming your health (28:00)
  • 2 warning signs that your are metabolically inflexible – and 2 simple changes you should make today (31:00) 
  • My #1 trick for getting the body to produce more ketones (especially if you are metabolically inflexible) (37:00)
  • Why so many of our brains are “starving to death” overnight – and what you can do about it (41:00)
